In the same vein as comedy horror movie Shaun of the Dead, the book tells of an oil rig that drills far too deep and unearths a volatile mix of monsters who want to ravage the human world. Nowhere is this more true than in the feisty Bogart-Bacall interactions between rakish rogue Harrison Ford and ice princess Carrie Fisher: their on-set dust-ups may be legendary, but their on-screen chemistry is unmistakable.

Chances are, most of us won’t get the chance to go into space. Indeed, women have been major figures in the field since the very beginning. I do, however, recognize a vast majority of the titles and authors, so much so that I have an idea as to what book I might be interested in or what book I should not even think about opening. To defend Earth, and to stake our own claim to planetary real estate.

Madame Vorsoisson was holding out a tray with a large mug of black coffee and a bottle of painkiller tablets. Pagan rituals and masochism is acceptable.

Lieutenant John Winger takes a detachment into space to divert the asteroid by using ANAD to disassemble it. They stop publishing a couple of times and started again in in 1988 and was "revamped" in 2007. The war went from bad to worse and the Government was universally detested. Le Guin, Voyager to Inner Lands and to Outer Space. Or in the case of my publisher, Toni Weisskopf—although she never said a word to me about it—probably exasperation. (“What the hell is he doing writing this stuff instead of novels, dammit?”) The essay does indeed represent a lot of work, since it’s 7,200 words long. (If word counts don’t mean much to you, that’s the length of two or three chapters in most novels.) But, in fact, I put very little work into it—this year.

Poul Anderson (1926-2001) published well over 100 novels over the last 50 years. This foreshadowed Space 1999’s modified “Exodus” theme: an unguided journey through the wilderness of space, blindly searching for a suitable planet to evacuate to and restart the human race.
